Čest a věčná sláva Republice Československé!
Lack of knowledge
Americans have no people who remember nazism So it's logical many of them may think it's just propaganda.
If you ask me there never was bigger evil in the world then nazis, for there is no other ideology (known to me) separating men kind into humans and subhumans (majority) that have to be removed.
In fact there are many rifles that were some kind of inspiration for Kalashnikov, like M1 garand, SKS, SVT-40, AB-46, AS-44, Avtomat Fedorova (AB-46 and M1 garand the most)... funny thing is none of them is Stg-44.. Stg-44 was in fact inspired by Soviet rifles, so if someone would say that Stg-44 is copy of SVT-40 if would be nonsence, but more resonable then claiming AK is copy of Stg-44. Only common thing of Stg and AK is gas operation system, which was used in many rifles before (SVT-40) and many rifles after (FN FAL). It is like claiming one car is copy of another because they both use diesel.
M16 has more common things with Stg-44 than AK, for example dissasembly system Nazarian.no
(older prototypes of AK had this system too),
Dust cover, magazine well, fire switcher and so on. M16 isn't of course copy of Stg but it's much more similar to Stg then AK.
I read sentences like this SOOO many times from so many different people so.. yeah people really are stupid like this.
They ussualy like to copy some sentences from czech wikipedia to prove that Hugo Schmeisser worked in same armory where AK-47 was born... which means for course that he created AK.. he have just.. forgot to mention that.
You've just saved my faith in humanity.. a little bit.
I had about 25 rounds with this :).
Shooting is very similar to SKS.
Privet drug! Awesome hamster! :D
How you can celebrate Christmas without having exams?
I use these every day.
Já na něm netrvám, já chci PK.
Respektive chtěl bych, kdyby mě AČR zajímala.
I know this video very well :). He is completely right in my opinion.
It's definitely not common for our army, but your mod is in the future isn't it?
It would be also easier to find animation for it.
But as I said, it's not common and I already sent you most common modern Vz58. But it's all your choice not mine :).
If you won't solve problem with animation it's probably good to pretend there is a bolt release :D.
It's like SVD, you can't release receiver by pressing any button. I meant that bolt stays open when your magazine (and gun of course) is empty.
I apologize for not making myself clear.
If you want it there hovewer it's possible to make it of course:
By the way as machine-gun we newly use FN MINIMI in 7.62x51.
Also Vz58 unlike AK has bolt catch.
Most common RIS position is handguard (on the top on the side and bottom): Img196.imageshack.us
If you want better, but still realistic modernisation, I recommend you something like this:
Or any other gun from gunexpert (these guns are made to order of some soldiers). But I still would recommend you first one.
Or this one if you don't want folding stock:
Slovakian army is in even worse situation then Czech army.
Hovewer Slovakian army at least have good old Vz58, which is very well known to soldiers, they love it and can have many attachements (even when our goverment says otherwise).
By the way we have no standard of modernized Vz58. Gun, that soldiers will get looks like this:
Every upgrade is bought by soldiers from their own money reserves!
Because for 60 years, our goverment was not able to make even a single change!
For those people, who say it's outdated gun - it is just as old as AR-15 plantform... is AR-15 outdated?
If US army would be as stupid as ours they would still use M16A1.
In every army they try to modernize the gun and when it's not enough then they start thinking about making new one... we did not make even a single change and we say it's outdated as hell and we need to make new gun in the price of 20 000 000 kč.
Nice model of Vz58 is used in Majo-213's mod Czechoslovak's People Army so you can ask him:
But it's very basic model so you have to do modernization by yourself :(.
Typical modernization looks like this:
I recommend you to use this one as pattern.
We can make much better of course, but as I said it's payed by soldiers, so it's not as great as can be.
93 of them are T-72 and the rest (30) is T-72M4CZ. And army use ONLY T-72M4CZ.
I've heard they are actually best version of T-72, but I still belive that having 4600 T-72s and T-62s is better then having 30 modernized T-72s.
That's the first reason, but our goverment do, so your view is realistic. Second reason is that Czech army is not an army. We have 30 tanks!!!
In the time of Czechoslovakia we had 4600 tanks. (Just to compare Russian army currently has 6000 active tanks).
We have tens of variants of Vz58. All of them are better then CZ-805.
There is czech site about it:
Also CZ-805 did not fully replaced Vz58. We have only 7937 CZ-805 rifles. Which means that basic weapon is still Vz.58. So it would be nice to see any modernized Vz58 in your mod ;). Just suggestion.
They chose the CZ-805 because price of first model was 200 millions and price of developed rifle is about 100 000 kč. That is about 50 times as much as for Vz58.
Because our state is kleptocratic they need every opportunity spend a lot of money to get something for themselves.
By the way according to professional tests creating better Vz58 (then CZ-805) would be MUCH, MUCH cheaper and still it would be MUCH better gun.
In numbers it would be 5 times cheaper for piece.. and I am not talking about 200 millions we had to pay to develop first piece of Cz-805 rifle.
Modernized Vz.58 would have NO disadvantages compare it to CZ-805 and ALL it's advantages + it would be realiable, much lighter, much simplier, much cheaper and it would not have many other TENS of problens, which soldiers reported (I can give you full list if you want).
Anyway modernized Sa Vz.58 would look like this:
Yeah perhaps, I am sure that it is possible to shoot this fast, but animation is too slow to be suitable.. anyway look at Lee-Enfield:
fast as hell! :D
You forgot to mention that this gun doesn't work :D.
You're going to add Czech army?
I am currently working on Mosin M38.
I am trying to add new weapon - Mosin M38
Už si na to stěžuje hodně lidí, takže bych se na to měl asi podívat :D.
Exactly my words.
